In Quest of the Perfect Van
By Northern Driver on
Vehicle2005 Nissan Quest 3.5 SL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewBesides the 2004 Quest SL with 33,000
miles we run a 2000 Odessey and 2001
Sienna.Quest- most fun to drive
(comparing their 1st year of operation)
with the best combination of effortless
road handling, speed, comfort and
quiet,stereo. The body construction
both inside & out seems less durable
than others. Auto rear door hatch -
great feature when carrying parcels.
Unfortunately the lift device on our's
just fell off.
Instrument controls -too confusing (all
digital with no manual click and stay
buttons). The digital buttons are flush-
tricky to engage-distracting. When the
van is shut off the fan defaults to
Bracket holding adjustable pedals very
dangerous-scathes toe. Hard on fuel
Best FeaturesGood stereo, Little road noise,middle & rear fold away seats make it very versatile, great suspension.Like instrument panel in middle,less distraction from instrument lights at night. Smooth quiet engine. Heated seats Nice colour selections.
Worst FeaturesWindshield washers useless. 2001 Sienna has best washers. With salt & snow winters this can be deadly. Get rid of adjustable pedals(I have size 9 shoes/forget winter boots) before a lawsuit begins. Need more touch sensitive instr. buttons. Improve gas mileage. Fix occasional creaking sliding doors.
